Posted in jest.

Bob and Alice is used in Cryptography as well. Probably originated with the 
film "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice." - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice_and_Bob

I think the E-1 in Ken's hands, when he pushes the button, gives different 
colors than if I pushed the same button. His eyes and mind pull in all those 
color photons into the camera. We are drawn to the camera that best fits our 
minds eye.
